1 in 5 children will be subjected to sexual assault before the age of 18. That’s a fact. Stand in a group of 5 people – chances are, one of you is a survivor of child sexual assault.
The 1in5 campaign is all about raising awareness of this heartbreaking and sickening statistic. Child sexual assault can have a lasting and devastating impact on a person’s life and it’s time we all said “No more”. We invite you to join us in our mission to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child, by taking a stand and spreading the message.
Bravehearts is a foundation that is dedicated to making Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child by eliminating child sexual assault. Since 1997, they have worked extensively with thousands of Australian children with programs designed to Educate, Empower and Protect.
Bravehearts has developed the 1in5.org.au campaign to bring to light this incredible statistic – that 1 in 5 children will experience sexual assault before their 18th birthday. In doing so, Bravehearts aims to gain the support of the Australian community in their mission.
And what’s more one of my friends is telling her story, she has a braveheart. Click here to read it.
